2009 Xinghai Bulang Qiaomu Sheng / Raw Puerh (357 grams)
** Sadly this tea is entirely sold out. We won't be getting any more of it. We have sold all we were able to get our hands on. We hope you were able to try some. **
This is a dry stored, stone pressed, sheng puerh from Bulang with just a hint of age to it. The Bulang Mountains are a high altitude puerh tea growing region in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China, where dense green jungles meet clear blue skies.
This 'Qiaomu' (Arbor Tree) sheng puerh brews with a golden liquor and pleasing aroma. The brew is very smooth with a thick mouthfeel that brings a wisp of smokiness. The aftertaste arrives with a hint of guava and a sweetness reminiscent of Smarties candy.
This sheng puerh has a strong energy that comes on quick in the early brews and continues through each steeping.
Use 5-7 grams of leaves and brew with 6-8 ounces of water at or near boiling. Wash once for 3s each, then start with a quick steep of 6s. With each re-steep adjust the steep time to your taste.
